Last Thursday, I did a presentation during the Dutch Oracle User Group event on JDeveloper 11g TP3. I sort of made fun of ourselves: the title of the event suggest we were like a bunch or carpenters coming together to discuss a new type of hammer that is not yet available and whose benefits we will discuss. Of course the really important topics are the trends in application development and deployment, application architecture and the user-application interaction patterns. The presentation I did – following Hugo Brandt (Oracle) and Edwin Biemond (Ordina) focused on those broader concepts. I discussed Web 2.0 and Social Networking, SaaS, Event Driven Architecture and a number of other trends that will influence the way we develop applications in the near future – and of course the way in which JDeveloper 11g will help us with that.
